THE GLASS BEDROOM
Kate Blackmore is an artist and filmmaker whose work draws on documentary and ethnographic practices and often takes the form of multi-channel video installations. Through her projects, she is interested in developing forms of representation that take their relevance from the friction and engagement with social and political reality. Blackmore is a Co-Director of the artist collective Barbara Cleveland (formerly Brown Council) whose work is informed by queer and feminist methodologies and draws on the historical lineages of both the visual and performing arts.
Blackmore’s and Barbara Cleveland’s screen-based projects have been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Artspace (Sydney), The Physics Room (Christchurch), Australian Experimental Art Foundation (Adelaide), Performance Space (Sydney), National Museum of Contemporary Art (Seoul) and Monash University Museum of Art (Melbourne). In 2016, Blackmore presented a commission for the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney) as part of the C3West initiative, and two commissions with Barbara Cleveland for the 20th Biennale of Sydney and the Art Gallery of NSW. Blackmore is currently completing a MA in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie University Berlin.
